-Support your local farmers by buying locally and help the environment by reducing fuel usage. Since the products are grown in the area there’s no need to transport goods from other places.
-Buy the freshest, tastiest fruits and vegetables of the season. It’s also a healthier option because most products are organic and you know where they originated.
-It’s a fun activity for the whole family and a great way to connect with your community.
So take advantage of the harvest season, go out, feel the wind on your face, the sun on your skin and check out your local farmers’ market today!
